Thursday, February 25, 2016

Update: 6:26PM THE United Nations Children's Emergency Fund estimates that up to 120,000 children across Fiji may be the worst affected by Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Its estimate comes as the full picture of the worst cyclone ever to hit Fiji becomes more apparent.

UNICEF Pacific representative Karen Allen said children were often the most vulnerable during emergencies and UNICEF continues to support the Fijian Government's efforts in addressing the needs of children.

The organisation has already started its relief work in the affected areas and its officials are also out in the field.
